Levine, who made headlines this week for being name the “first-ever female” four-star admiral in the Public Health Service, lived their first 40+ years as a male before undergoing gender transition.
Reps. Jim Banks and Marjorie Taylor Greene, both Republicans, spoke up for women when they posted their belief that Levine is a “man,” and that saying Levine is the “first female” to attain this post is actually a detriment for the furtherance of women’s equal rights.
NEW: Twitter has censored @RepJimBanks for calling HHS’ Rachel Levine a man. He will be locked out of his account until he deletes the tweet, “The title of first female four-star officer gets taken by a man.” pic.twitter.com/6wdDqJ36kH
